It's like... the organic version of modular. Probably gonna be great friends with Kalonian Hydra back there.

Green modular.

Kinda wish it was a beast creature (like Wumpus or thoctar) and was just fat for this effect; feels odd that this effect is essentially giving other creatures hydra heads.

I can get over it though :D

It hardly compares with Primordial Hydra or Savageborn Hydra, does it? Still, I suppose it could work with Corpsejack Menace all the same.

Great art, and more of Green's iconic big tribe is a good thing. But how does it compare to Jugan, the Rising Star?
Jugan: pay 3GreenGreenGreen for a 5/5 legendary flier that gives you 5 +1/+1 counters when it dies.
V. Hydra: Variable Colorless means it can cost whatever you want it to. For the same CMC as Jugan, you pay 4GreenGreen for a vanilla 0/0 with 4 +1/+1 counters that it gives you when it dies.
So in terms of mana investment and general quality, Jugan wins - a 5/5 flier is more useful than a 4/4 vanilla at the same cost (the hydra is more splashable though).
However, the hydra comes with the advantage of operating via +1/+1 counters that are already on it, so any form of doubling/proliferating shenanigans applies. And of course, if you have the mana you can pay more for a bigger creature, but it's still less efficient than other creatures Green can get.

Well... It's ok for limited and casual decks. In all serious constructed decks, it's simply far too slow. It's like a severely limited, more expensive and less flexible version of forgotten ancient.

Smallest hydra shown in a pic and we still don't get to see what the rest of their bodies look like. I always wonder, for like the giant hydras, is what they eat lol? Like they're so much bigger than anything, it's hard to imagine there being a sustainable population of hydras on any plane.

I also like how this is "set" in Zendikar's Vastwood. I can see it fitting into that block mechanically, and I appreciate seeing more of other planes in the core set. Building a brand of settings. I approve.
